Utilize ShipWeight for better performance

Here at B&A Software we are passionate about meeting your needs and providing a software that makes the building of any project safe and reliable. For you to be able to use the software we offer a ShipWeight Training Program. In this program you will receive a package of customized training sessions. We will help you to develop the solution that is best for your company and the schedule you need to meet. We have a standard package with Basic Training that can be customized. If you have done the Basic Training and feel that you need a recap, we have a Basic Training Recap Program. If you need help customizing ShipWeight, we have workshop packages where we can help you find the best solution for the needs of your company. For professional replenishment we offer lectures in Weight Engineering topics.

Workshops - Customize Software

A workshop session where we together with you will try to develop new custom codes to be used for all projects. You have the ideas we will help you make them come alive in ShipWeight.

Workshop where we try to understand your needs in the Work Breakdown Structure and help you set it up in one main WBS with possible secondary WBS.

Workshop where you will get help to develop a Crystal Reports Design that you later can develop on your own or may hire us to create for you.
